Easy Going Trails
We have developed 18 easy to follow trails to help everyone to get close to nature in Suffolk's countryside. Each trail is designed to be straightforward to follow and on generally level ground. Using our Easy Going Trails you can explore magical Cavenham Heath, spot rare birds at Lackford Lakes, visit Britain's first village at West Stow Country Park, enjoy the beautiful landscape at Thornham Walks, or marvel at the summer heather on Dunwich Heath.
The trails have been carefully assessed by a team of disabled volunteers and are divided into Easy Access Trails which are suitable for all, and Easy Going Trails which follow slightly rougher ground and are a bit more challenging. Each walk starts at a car park, most have accessible toilet facilities, and many have cafes or tea rooms. There are a few trails in really wild destinations with no facilities, although you should still find facilities fairly close by.
Whilst every care has been taken to provide accurate information, please be aware that accessibility is liable to be influenced by the weather. Most of the trails are low-level walks on firm ground with occasional gentle slopes. Only some of the paths have all weather surfaces and care should be taken if there has been a particularly wet, frosty or snowy period of poor weather, when the surfaces of grassy paths cold be more difficult to negotiate.
